STRUCTURE: A new mental health facility has opened in Bradford. 

Bradford District Care Trust’s Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit, known as Clover Ward, has moved from its previous base at Airedale Centre for Mental Health in order to provide care closer to home for adults experiencing an episode of serious mental ill health.

The move forms part of the “Mental Health: Hospital services for adults and older people in Airedale, Bradford and Craven” 4 month public consultation, which ended in May 2012.

The next stage will be to develop the vacant space at the Airedale Centre for Mental Health into a specialist Older Peoples’ In-Patient Ward.
